The Flix Cinema

Come on down for not just a great film but an excellent social evening with fine wine, good entertainment and good company.
The film is about the troubles faced by a colliery brass band, following the closure of their pit. The soundtrack for the film was provided by the Grimethorpe Colliery Band, and the plot is based on Grimethorpe‘s own struggles against pit closures. It has been generally very positively received for its role in promoting brass bands and their music. Parts of the film make reference to the huge increase in suicides that resulted from the end of the coal industry in Britain, and the struggle to retain hope in the circumstances.

Special thanks for our sponsors, who have made this project possible.

Please note that any fees are for entrance to the library at the specified time (out-with normal library opening hours) and a refreshment.  Due to the terms and conditions of our screening license, we can not make a charge for viewing the film, however additional donations will be most welcome.

We are also unable to announce publicly the titles of the films we are screening, but hopefully our clues will be enough for you to guess… If you are unsure give the library a call or pop in as posters containing the film titles will be on display in the library.
